One more build for 2018… on a Thursday?! September 13th, 7pm

We’re trying something different – a weekday build!  Many people can’t make it out on weekends, so here’s a Thursday evening build for you, on September 13th.  We’ll start at 7 pm; most people take about 90 minutes to build their Little Library.

Or you can pick up a kit to take home if you’d prefer.  The kits are $60 – cash only.  There’s no extra cost to participate in the build (vs taking home the kit).  For this build, we will only have gable-style kits available.

The build will happen at the Menno Martin Contractor shop in St Jacobs, as always – 1185 King Street N, right near the southern boundary of St Jacobs on King Street.

If you have a powered screwdriver or drill (cordless will be much easier to use), please bring it along!  We have a few for folks to share if you don’t have one.  Everything else that you need for the build will be provided.  You will end up with a lovely little library which you can then caulk, paint, roof and install at your leisure.

Please email Sonya at with the following info:

1) Your name, and an email address that you check regularly – I can’t emphasize this enough!  We need to be able to correspond with you if plans change.  You will also get a confirmation email soon.

2) Whether you would like to build with us, or if you’d rather pick up a kit instead (between 7:30pm and 8:30pm).  (You can send someone else to pick up your kit if you can’t make it)

For this build, we will only have gable-style kits available – we’re sorry for any inconvenience this may pose.

Don’t delay!  The folks on the waiting list got first dibs, and there only 10 kits in total!  If you’d like to be on the waiting list for a future build, please email Sonya at and let her know.
